Important Records has announced that Alessandro Cortini’s Forse trilogy is now available in limited edition colored vinyl.
Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails/How To Destroy Angels) composed the Forse series using a Buchla Music Easel. Forse, meaning “maybe” In Italian, is a series of 3 double LP releases Cortini recorded for Important to release in 2013.
“All pieces were written and performed live on a Buchla Music Easel, in the span of one month,” notes Cortinin. “I found that the limited array of modules that the instrument offers sparked my creativity.”
“Most pieces consist of a repeating chord progression, where the real change happens at a spectral/dynamic level, as opposed to the harmonic/chordal one. I believe that the former are just as effective as the latter, in the sense that the sonic presentation (distortion , filtering, wave shaping, etc) are just as expressive as a chord change or chord type, and often reinforce said chord progressions.”
The first 200 copies in the new pressings are on colored vinyl and packaged in a deluxe heavy duty gatefold jacket, printed on thick board stock with a lush matte laminate.
